9/11 has been ended in iraq. and all of those variables factor into decisions about how we mark this day as americans. but also how our leaders or our would be leaders mark it. how we commemorate 9/11 is a work in progress. we saw today a decision by the white house and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thing he's been stay save saying on t
events. about ten years ago, perhaps, iran was under direct threat. those who have occupied iraq and afghanistan were threatening iran on a daily basis. i do not believe that we are under any special conditions now from those sources, but the fact that the world -- historic period in the world is coming to an end, an era during which power has set the first and last word. those holding the keys to power have set the fate of many populations. that era is coming to an end. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammed. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi in libya. the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attack which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people, we condemn. likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or not
those prisoners at gitmo and to rehabilitate them. but we have seen instances, both in iraq and afghanistan, and for that matter pakistan, where former detain s have been involved in planning and executing attacks against americans abroad. >> on the issue of -- with libya today, it is stunning the lack of coordination between the intelligence community and the state department. >> what do we know? we know it was a terror attack. it was planned two or three days in advance. we knew it had nothing to do with the video. we know our ambassador was tortured now before he was killed. >> what we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm u.s. interests or -- well, we don't know yet. we are going to continue to investigate this. >> it wasn't the video. >> our ambassador was tortured before he was murdered. no leadership whatsoever. i don't think barack obama is capable of leadership. he's capable of mesmerizing, but he's not capable of leadership. >> so what's up? wh

are failing in iraq. the iranian planes are flying over iraq to deliver arms to bashar al-assad and al qaeda is on the resurgence. in afghanistan we just saw the greatest single attack as far as money is concerned in our base where we lost some $200 million worth of aircraft. we have canceled training and operations with afghans because we don't trust them because of this killing by afghans of americans in uniform. by the way, this was a very, very professional attack they made on the base in afghanistan. in iran, the iranians do not think we are serious. we just criticize israel and tell israel they should not attack iran. in syria, 25,000 people have been massacred and the president of the united states doesn't even speak on their behalf. they believe that america is weak and we are withdrawing. that is what it is all about. >>neil: with the more violence the more the folks are inclined to say, to hell with him. i had ron paul on a couple of days ago and i mentioned to him, you thought it was a good idea to encourage the moderates throughout the middle east, particularly places like libya
as a presidential candidate in many ways because of his opposition to the war in iraq. >> and what you saw in his "60 minutes" interview is that the white house clearly feels they are on very strong ground making that appeal. what he said is i'd like to know whether governor romney really wants to go forward with a war, a third war and a war with iran, is that what he's talking about. they feel that the american people are not only weary of war, but really understandably nervous about englanlging iran and the likelihood that that would imflan the entire region. >> let's talk about egypt. basically fledgling democracy. there was that statement by the president about whether or not egypt was an ally or an enemy. and cbs this morning talked to the new president of egypt. here's what he said when he was asked about that comment. >> translator: it was warm, it was not hot. >> what's the difference in warm and hot? >> translator: same difference between friendship and being an enemy. we're not enemies, of course. >> but you're friends. >> translator: we're friends. >> allies? >> translator: the u.s. pr
detroit should go bankrupt, you're going to hear about ending the war in iraq, he's going to say that thing about every american getting their fair shot and playing by the rules. if you're a fan, a fan enough to go to a speech like this, you likely know what you're going to hear in broad strokes. today, today on the campaign trail, there was this moment in ohio where the crowd totally thought that president obama was going somewhere that he was not actually going. they started to audibly react as if he was talking about something that they pretty clearly really wanted him to talk about. but he was not going where they thought he was. listen. >> now, there was one person at governor romney's convention last week who wasn't entirely on script. no, no -- >> no, no. the crowd is sort of half booing and half starting to applaud. and a lillal excitement that president obama is about to talk about the off skrift guy from last week, right? he's going to talk about this clint eastwood thing, but that's not what the president is about to do at all. behold an ortorical letdown in ohio. >> t

honored the fallen, visiting the special section reserved for service members killed in iraq and afghanistan. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington on a day that gives every american pause reflecting on the great loss and our country's resolve. today president obama told service members that the deadly attacks will strengthen and connect us for decades to come. >> when the history books are written, the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate, or division, it will be a safer world, a stronger nation, and a people more united than ever before. >> let's turn to our team here at home and oversees. nbc's ron allen in new york. nbc chief pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski and atia abawi in kabul. first to you at ground zero, talk about the feelings, the memorial, the ceremonies today. >> well, andrea, each commemoration, each anniversary is unique and different, powerful and special, and this one certainly was as well. it was smaller, more intimate, more private and less public if you will, although certainly open to the public. about a thousand peop
, iraq and tan stan and elsewhere. so to imply that we somehow had mistreated the muslim which was the premise of his speech and how the iraq war inflamed the world and there was no storming of the u.s. embassy. >> gretchen: if you have an outreach to muslim, you done have an outreach to the terrorist faction of muslims. i don't think anything works with that faction of muslim. >> eric: that speech had a lot of apologies in it. charles points out. he first three-quarters of the way of the speech. he said we handled post 9/11 improperly apologized for the iraq war and default apologized for george bush. that was the first peach he made off domestic soil and. kind of kicked off the continued apology tour we talked about? >> brian: we should not curve our free speech because the muslim world doesn't understand what they are doing. we have joints of staff calling crazy people in florida . really? we have to wooch what we are saying. we can't be responsible for the people in our borders. you think we want to be held for everybody in this country? and watch what we speak because the

of the united states now is because he was against the iraq war from the start. as a state senator he spoke out against the invasion of iraq saying he was not against all war, but he was against that war. he was never against the afghanistan war, though. when barack obama became president, in part because of that early clear stance against iraq, he quickly made clear that he would keep his commitment to end the war in iraq. and he made clear that the war in afghanistan would grow. at the end of his first year in office, president obama announced a surge of tens of thousands of troops into afghanistan, putting more american there than george w. bush ever did. the president insisted that the surge into afghanistan would not last forever. he said the surge in troop numbers had previously over by roughly now, the end of september, 2012. now a little ahead of schedule, before the end of the month, the pentagon has announced that the surge into afghanistan is over. there had been as many as 100,000 americans on the ground in afghanistan. now it is down to 68,000 which, frankly, is still a huge number
-thirds of republicans say there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq when our troops got there in 2003. do they have amnesia? have they been buried in their basements the last nine years? what explains this many people being so out to lunch they don't even remember how "w," remember him, he was president, blew his whole reason for sending our troops in there in the first place. how can people be so helpless. anyway, this may explain why romney is in trouble because people out there think his party is out of it. joining me is howard fineman and joe klein of the times. let's take a look at the two polls. the two key states ohio and florida. according to "the washington post," president obama has a four-point lead over mitt romney in florida. four points down there in a very tough state. 51%,/47% for obama. in ohio, the president's lead is a more comfortable eight points. 52/44. that's dramatic. we have joining us -- let's take a look at that for a minute. howard fineman, thank you for joining us, and joe klein of "time" magazine. thank you. it strikes me the numbers i put out tonight, and i'm going to

entered the iraq war. one of the reasons that al qaeda strengthened during the last decade was our focus in iraq. so we are happy to have this debate and we'll have it obviously -- >> was this an intelligence failure? >> no. this was an event obviously, a complex event. we're only talking about a matter of weeks here. so as information was arrived at, as determinations were made, that was shared with the american people. and i think again the focus needs to be how do we make sure that our facilities and ambassadors and our personnel are secure going forward. and that's what the focus is on. >> as you know, the chairman of the homeland security committee has called for susan rice to resign. >> she's done an excellent job for this country and this administration. >> ben ghazi is so bad that the fbi can't even go in and investigate. what about the fact that there are military operations to find ambassador stephens' killers? what is america doing to change the trajectory in libya? >> well, i'm not going to speak for the fbi, but i think the key thing here, we live in a dangerous world obviou
